Our Sausalito waterfront businesses know the importance of a good “crew” working in harmony to achieve a collective goal, and we wanted to share some great examples of these positive collaborations.
The Bay Model Visitor Center is bringing together several organizations whose mission and purpose complement one another. The Bay Model which has been around over 50 years and been teaching the importance of San Francisco Bay to groups of adults and school children for a long time works along with Call of the Sea’s vessel Seaward. The Seaward takes school children out on the Bay so the kids can see firsthand what they were just learning inside the Bay Model.
Call of the Sea (formerly Educational Tall Ship) has been making great progress building the Matthew Turner right here in the Marinship. When the ship is completed it will also join the educational fleet at the Bay Model.
Sea Trek Ocean Kayaking Center has recently moved from Schoonmaker Beach to a new location next to the Bay Model. Sea Trek is a welcome addition to this waterfront area as they get locals onto the Bay via paddleboard or kayak, which is in keeping with the mission of its neighbors.
All of these organizations are also partners with the Aquarium of the Bay on Pier 39 in San Francisco. By working together they hope to develop ongoing stewardship of the Bay and a deeper appreciation for this precious natural resource.
Next door to the Visitor Center Modern Sailing School and Club offers American Sailing Association certifications through approved courses, taught by U.S. Coast Guard licensed Captains. Winner of the American Sailing Association (ASA) Outstanding School.
